A GOOD VAUDEVILLE SHOW.
PATTEN AND PERRY'S 'JERRY FROM KERRY' AT THE ACADEMY.
The Patten and Perry musical farce comedy company and vaudeville show held the boards at the Academy last night. There was only a fair attendance, caused no doubt by the warm weather. The performance throughout was excellent, and all present had good laughs and enjoyed the various features of the show immensely.
The Patten and Perry band rendered "A Hunt in the Black Forest" in splendid style. The Gibbs sisters - Margie and Lulu - tots about 9 or 10 years of age, simply captured the audience with their singing and dancing, their sand dance being particularly good. Campbell and Fletcher, the comedy acrobats, performed some good as well as amusing feats, and their work was fully appreciated by the audience. Major Caillouette received round after round of applause for his slack wire performance, he introducing many up-to-date juggling acts while balancing himself on the slack wire. His baton manipulation received well-earned applause.
The Perrys, G. H. and Miss Lizzie, gave a splendid presentation of a refined character change dramatic sketch entitled, "The Newsboy." They kept the audience amused during their entire performance.
The Three Pattens presented their latest comedy creation entitled "Jerry from Kerry," introducing several high class musical novelties.
Dick Mitchell, a rural comedian, and Billy Gibbs, the eccentric comedian, were also well received.
The performance ended with a comedy entitled "An Editor's Troubles."
The show will be presented again to-night and to-morrow afternoon and evening.
The concerts by the band are greatly enjoyed by the public, and the band has been pronounced as the best with a show in years. They give concerts at the Academy at 7:30 each evening, and at 2 p.m. to-morrow before the matinee.
